How to Choose Jewellery Based on Your Skin Tone

How to Choose Jewellery Based on Your Skin Tone

For most of us, selecting jewellery is a simple three-step process: We see it. We like it. We buy it. The only problem here is that we tend to like a lot of things. How does one pick between oxidized jhumkas and dainty gold hoops? Do you get that necklace in rose gold or silver?

Much like make-up, the jewellery choices that you make can help highlight and enhance your features. Certain gems can bring out the hidden flecks of color in your eyes or the radiance in your natural skin tone. With some deliberate decision-making, you can select the pieces that you love in the variation best suited to you.

So, without further ado, here is an easy guide on how to make the best jewellery choices based on your own unique self.

Step 1: The Skin Tone Search

The jewellery that we wear, most often, rests against our skin which makes our skin tone an important factor in determining which jewellery pieces will compliment us best. It is important to remember that your skin tone is not the same as your skin color and stays the same regardless of how tanned your skin color may have gotten over the summer.

Skin tones are generally of three types: cool, warm, and neutral. When the overall complexion of a person has more blue and pink hues, they have a cool skin tone. Warm skin tones tend to have more yellow, peach, and golden undertones while neutral skin tones belong to people who show neither cool nor warm undertones.

An easy and reliable way to figure out what your skin tone is is to do a vein check. The veins on your wrist will reveal what group your skin tone belongs to. More bluish-purple veins represent a cool skin tone while veins that are greener a telling of a warm skin tone. If you are unable to determine green or blue for sure, then you probably have a neutral skin tone. Make sure to check under natural light, however, to get the most accurate reading.

Another indicator is based on how your skin reacts to the sun. If your skin tends to burn or turn red in the sun, it is a sign of a cool skin tone. People with warm tones, on the other hand, tend to tan easily when exposed to the sun.

Step 2: Matching Metals

For cool skin tones, white metals like silver and platinum are the best choice. If you have fair skin with pale or red undertones, go for something in silver or white gold as it will stand out nicely against your skin. Metals like silver also go well with pale or blonde hair and give cool skin tones a glowy radiance.

Warm skin tones look absolutely gorgeous in metals like gold, brass, pewter, and copper. These metals work in tandem with the yellow and gold undertones to create a striking look. Gold really comes into its own when placed against darker skin. If you have an ebony or espresso complexion, opt for rose and yellow golds to create that ethereal feel.

The luckiest of the lot are people with neutral skin tones. These lightly tanned, olive, or Mediterranean skin tones don’t need to think twice before making a choice. The world of jewellery is theirs for the taking as they can carry off pretty much any metal or jewel of their choice with complete ease.

Step 3: Gemstones and Jewels

With a myriad of colorful gemstones and jewels to select from, add a splash of color to your jewellery choices. Cool skin tones look best when matched with red, blue and purple stones. Blue Sapphire, Aquamarine, Amethyst, Ruby, Topaz are some great gemstones that go with a cool skin tone. You can also pick some white or rose-tinted pearl necklaces or earrings for that perfect elegant look.

Warm skin tones go best with more earthy colors like oranges, yellows, greens and browns. For your bejewelled rings and earrings, go with Citrine, Imperial Topaz, Moonstone, Emerald, Jade, and so on.

According to designer Charlotte Blakeney, these gemstones can also play a role in enhancing your eyes. Stones like Amethyst, for instance, are a dazzling match for amber eye colors while blue and green stones really bring out pale eye colors. For people with hazel or brown eyes, darker stones like garnets make for a deeply alluring look.

If you are unsure about which stone to choose and cannot make up your mind, diamonds are your best bet. Whether it is a diamond-studdednecklace or a simple pair of earrings, these glittering jewels bring out the best in anyone and act as middle-ground for all skin tones and skin colors. So, when in doubt all you have to do is shine bright like a diamond.

Step 4: Make it Fun

Whenever you style your jewellery, always remember to have fun with it. At the end of the day, there are no hard and fast rules, no rights and wrongs. The point of jewellery is to make you feel confident and comfortable in your own skin.

Develop a style that is uniquely yours. Don’t be afraid to try on some silver or rose gold even if the veins under your wrist are telling you that you can’t. These guidelines are here to help you get the most out of your jewellery collection. They are meant to equip you with the information to make the right choices for you. With these simple steps, you can start making conscious choices about the jewellery that you buy and wear and understand how different styles accentuate different features.

So, find the pieces that not only flatter you but also that make you feel happy and stylish. Own your choices and look absolutely stunning doing just that!
